Review! Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation

Hello gorgeous people!

Today I am writing about a foundation that I discovered on our highstreet in the good old Boots (drugstore) this foundation has a bright orange lid and glass bottle which stands out. This foundation has had such great reviews, so I decided to purchase this after years of always using my MAC Studio Fix Foundation my true friend! I purchased shade Soft Beige 200. So to save pennies I made the plunge to try something different....am I happy I did? Keep reading lovelies!

Rimmel states it is "Our first foundation that visibily reawakens and illuminates skin with a radiant glow and flawless natural looking finish. Instant anti-age fatigue effect. With peptides and a vitamin moisturising complex".


Packaging The packaging certainly stands out with the bold orange lid! Orange isnt a favourite colour of mine but hey not a massive problem for me. The bottle is glass which I personally love as it adds an expensive look to the packaging. The lid has the lovely Rimmel crown logo on and is sturdy and easy to remove. What I love about this foundation is the pump, I really struggle with foundations that dont have pumps as I feel I dont get all the product out or I cant get any! This pump is easy to use and pumps out just the right amount.

How does it look? This foundation feels so good! It isnt thick and gloopy, it is silky and easy to apply. It doesnt streak and made my skin feel soft, looking radiant, bright and happy! This certainly doesnt make me look "caked" as some foundations can do and it covered my blemishes. The product lasts all day! I am so impressed by the look it gives me!

Conclusion I agree with Rimmels statement! This foundation is easy to use, illuminates the skin as well as giving it a flawless finish that looks natural! The foundation stays put all day and ensures my skin feels soft and looks bright! Super foundation that I prefer to my trusty MAC foundation and that is saying a lot from me!

10/10!! Go get it people!!

Have you tried this or is what is your current favourite foundation?

  8. Hiya - it's @staceysmum84 from Twitter. Thanks for sending me your link. Glad you did as your blog is awesome and I'm now following (yay).

    I totally love this foundation from Rimmel. I find that I can totally skip concealer when I use it as it hides all manner of imperfections. Fab product.
